San Diego Chargers

Capacity: 70,000 (approx.)

Surface: Grass

History: The stadium is typical of the "cookie cutter" design era, and served as home to the Chargers from its first year in 1967 and the Padres since 1969, until the Padres moved into a new stadium in 2004. The former Jack Murphy Stadium, originally built to a capacity of 52,000 at a cost of $27 million, has little color, except most notably for the ring of honor and banners of all 32 NFL teams. Concourses are narrow for the most part. Seating capacity was increased to 60,100 in 1984. The facility underwent another expansion in 1997 that included the addition of thousands of seats, a club level, 37 new suites and a new west-end Jumbotron screen.
